Water Quality ManagementWater quality management is essential to increasing the life of your pond as well as the maintaining the look of your pond.
Prevent the number of fish kills in your pond by installing a fountain or aerator. By doing so, you will increase the amount of oxygen in your pond that the fish need to survive. Your fish will be healthier and grow faster.
Algae is unsightly and can become a menace if not controlled. In ponds crowded with vegetation, oxygen levels fluctuate to a greater extent and fish can suffocate. These fish kills can be prevented by taking the proper precautionary measures. We highly recommend white amur as a natural way of controlling vegetative growth in ponds. These certified, sterile fish are herbivores that graze on virtually all species of algae and aquatic vegetation. This allows reduction or elimination of chemical treatments to maintain appropriate levels of vegetation in the pond. Aerators, fountains and wetland plants are great tools in preventing algae.
